Proverbs 7:4-5 Forming a kinship with wisdom protects you from seduction

How do you protect yourself from a seductress?  First of all you must realize that the seductress is not a flesh and blood woman.  She is a word that comes to appeal to your inner desires.  Humans are vulnerable because we want things that we see, we covet many things that we don't posess and we want to demonstrate our worth to others.  These desires make us easy prey for the seductress.  She knows how to appeal to these desires.  People who are devoid of wisdom and understanding cannot see the danger!  This is why God begs us to form a close bond with Him and His word.  He knows that it will protect us from the enticing trap of those who seek to seduce.  We gain power to resist the seductress when we pursue God's wisdom on a daily basis.  We must ask God to "Give us this day our daily bread (the ability to apply His word)".  When we acquire wisdom and understanding, the words of the seductress fall on deaf ears!

Proverbs 30:11-14 Pursue God, allow Him to cleanse you or be counted with those who believe that their way is right!

These verses from Proverbs 11 form a prophetic warning for our generation.   The Bible actually has more to say about the time in which we live than any other time period in human history!  There are two important things to note about the time in which we live: 

1)  the wickedness of mankind will spiral out of control, and

2)  many people will not recognize their need to have their heart cleansed. 

This generation is "pure in its own eyes" and is "not washed from its filthiness".  Jesus left us a directive for this hour, "be not deceived". There is only one way to escape the chaos and deception of this generation, we must pursue God and allow Him to cleanse us.  Those who refuse to do this will be counted with the crowd that believes that their way is right.  For more information on this generation, please see this Parable Power article: A World In Chaos
